How to reset my cobra alarm without a fob after push button in cab was activated. I have code.


Go to the cobra site, trouble shooting. Never have put an alarm in. But have tore out hundreds of them. Anytime I get a No start or problems like yours. I look under the dash for after market alarms and remote starts. I would tell you up front, That system has to go. 99.5% of the time, when I take them out and fix the wiring. The cars starts and has no problems. The best alarm systems last 5 to 7 years. Cheap ones, your lucky to get a year out of them. Like I said, when I see them, they have to go before I do anything else.

I had to use my emergency key access code to get into my discovery 2. how do i reset the immobiliser on the car?


The immobilizer systems on these vehicles can only be accessed and programmed by a dealer or a shop with a T4 or Autologic scantool system. Typically, replacing batteries in a fob should not present any new issues. Try manually locking the vehicle with the key. One turn to the right with the key in the driver door should lock the whole vehicle, activate the alarm which is indicated by one horn beep, a flash of the parking lights & a rapid flashing of the red light on the dash. After less than a minute, the red light should go to a slower flash and the vehicle is now armed. By placing the key back in the drivers door, one turn to the left should de-activate the alarm and a second turn should un-lock the rest of the vehicle and it should start. If this does not work then the key may not be communicating with the vehicle and may need to be re-programmed. Make sure the batteries in the fob are correct, installed correctly and of good quality. If you do need to have the key re-programmed, make sure you have all the keys so that they can all be done at the same time. Most local shops do not have the capability to access the immobilization systems on these vehicles.

The alarm system has activated and we cannot disarm the system via the Remote Key Fob or by key at the doors or hatchback. Tried disconnecting battery same problem. When the doors open the system...


Hi Edward:
In dashboard, your THEFT warning light is blinking? If the answer is yes, your antotheft system is activated and will need restart and resynchonized. This occurs when battery is disconneting or other un-authorized key is used.

Vehicles equipped with Vehicle Theft Security System (VTSS) are protected from vehicle theft andunauthorized entry. VTSS system monitors vehicle doors, hood, liftgate and ignition. If an attempt is made toenter or operate vehicle without proper disarming of system, vehicle horn will sound, headlights, taillights andparking lights will flash, and engine will be prevented from running.

VTSS system arms when ignition is off, vehicle is exited, door is locked using power door locks and door isclosed. Alternatively a remote keyless entry transmitter can be used to arm system. A security light on panelwill flash for 15 seconds to indicate system is arming. At the end of 15 seconds, if no door, hood or tailgate isopened, system is armed.

If alarm is triggered, horn will sound for 3 minutes, and lights will flash for an additional 15 minutes. If hornsounds 3 times when either front door is unlocked, vehicle has been tampered with (tamper alert). If doors arelocked manually or with key, system will not arm (manual override). If an unauthorized entry does occur, VTSSsystem signals Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to prevent vehicle from being driven. PCM reduces injectorpulse width to zero, causing a start and stall condition.

System can be disarmed with the keyless entry transmitter, or by using key to enter vehicle. In both instances, if alarm was activated, vehicle alarm will be terminated. If battery is disconnected and reconnected, alarm will beactivated and it will be necessary to disarm system as indicated.

Please, send us some email account to send you this procedure in PDF format file.

Is your 2nd key fob giving you the same problem?

Have you change the battery inside the key fob?


Check the mirror for alarm/immobilize indicator.

If you using a dead key fob then alarm system will immobilize the ignition system.
